Tunic dress - thrifted
Leggings - Danskin
Socks - giftPearl Hart Bellevue Pumps - John Fluevog
Any other thrifters out there feel sorry for the clothes in thrift stores? I find knits with holes or pillings, sandals with a little life left, or t shirts that were once well loved, but eventually sent to donation. I find the pieces with tags still on or in NWOT condition, and I think of the life that all those clothes went through. Did someone order it online, find it didn't fit and was too lazy? Hated gift? Cherished piece that made that person feel fierce? Sometimes I'll buy an imperfect thrifted piece and take it home to wear it those last few wears. I try not to do this very often, but sometimes I just can't help being drawn to the piece in the first place.
This tunic is a little pilled, I already had to sew up one hole today, but I didn't spend much on it. I wish it was made out of a sturdy cotton jersey instead of a thin acrylic knit. It would have become a big staple. For now, I'm wearing it until it falls apart. I mean, c'mon it matches my favorite pair of socks!!! Also yes those are leggings, a rare thing for me. I wish I had a black pair like this, but they're always sold out everywhere in the brand/size I need. Ah well. Life, it happens.
